Hi all, I've been playing around with setting up a personal git tree
for kernel patches. I've followed Jeff Garzik's guide, as well as
some of the docs. I have no problem setting it up,
however I have a question about which method to use for my tree.
Basically I just want to use it as a method of tracking my own
trivial patches (and perhaps give maintainers easier access to them).

Quilt is very good at doing this kind of thing.

It keeps all your patches in a "patches" subdirectory and makes going back and fixing previous patches very easy (git makes this quite hard). You can rsync your patches/ directory to any webserver, and anyone else can save them in a patches subdirectory and apply them in the same way (the equivalent of sharing your tree).
